We love the modern, funky lights, bells and locks from Australian company Knog. The USB rechargeable Blinder lights affix to your bike pretty much anywhere, the locks come all sorts of sizes and lengths and colours, and we particularly like these new silver and gold Oi bicycle bells we saw at the show.
